No further data changes are planned. That is, 2023c is planned to be the 
same as 2023a, except for commentary. Before issuing 2023c I want to 
wait a few more hours for responses to that idea, which was circulated 
on this list.

In an attempt to see the lighter side of the situation I installed into 
the development repository the attached patch to commentary. This adds 
four xkcd panels to our humor section: "Good Morning"[1], "Consensus New 
Year"[2], "Edge Cake"[3], and "Consensus Time"[4]. If cartoonist Randall 
Munroe lurks on this list, perhaps he'll add a panel about Lebanon's 
time chaos some day.

This patch also refers to Emanuele Arciuli's recent recording[5] of the 
first twelve parts of The Time Curve Preludes[6], a piano cycle composed 
in 1977/8 by William Duckworth[7]. I heard part of this cycle for the 
first time yesterday when listening to the March 20 broadcast of Alley 
Stoughton's radio show "Not Brahms and Liszt"[8] on MIT's station WMBR 
88.1 FM. That broadcast recording[9] is available for the next six days 
in the show's archive, if you'd like to listen too. The selection from 
The Time Curve Preludes is the third piece in the show, and I found it a 
welcome relief from this week's time chaos.
